significant death. this is a man who was the most powerful man in all of south afghanistan based out of kandahar an nothing happened in that entire region without him. he controlled the area for his brother, the president hamid karzai. it was really critical for the united states because they really depended on him for their ability to move forward with the anti-taliban campaign. they held their nos because this guy was corrupt dealing in the drug trade, although he denied the allegations but it was believed he was fueling the drug trade, as well as profiting from private security contractors as well. it is something that is going to worry the u.s. about the stability of afghanistan and of the region and it will benefit the taliban. >> zain verjee, definitely a story we will continue to keep following and see what impact it does have on politics there. of course, his brother, the president. >>> the man with a huge collection of presidential memorabilia apparently tried to add to it illegally. we will tell you what went down. >>> crew members from the international space station have

about nation building, failed states, afghanistan, iraq, somalia, iraq, haiti, the foreign policy challenges that we've faced weapon have the illusion which i would call the problem of getting to denmark. denmark is in quotations. it's not a real country. it's the mythical place that have low corruption, democracy, stable government, good services delivered very efficiently and so forth. we have the vision of denmark in the back of our heads and go to a place like afghanistan. how are we going to get afghanistan to look like denmark? and it doesn't work very well. and part of the reason that i began to realize was that we don't understand how denmark got to be denmark. i had a visiting professorship, so i've been going. most danes have no idea how denmark got to be denmark. it struck me as a political scientist, this ought to be a book you can go to to say where did political institutions come from. i didn't see one. so i decided to write it. that's why we get the book that i've produced. so i also did not want to write a book on the origins of politics that told this traditional

's brother in afghanistan. any likely correction there? >> reporter: not clear. i rather doubt it, although this is a part of the world where two weeks ago we saw an attack on the intercontinental poe tell in kabul. this is a part of the world that is boiling up again, whether it's in afghanistan, pakistan, whether it's potentially in india. those three countries are all linked. the indians have ties in afghanistan. the pakistanis are worried that the indians are going to make inch roads into pakistan and afghanistan as the united states leaves the region. so, again, it's too soon to make any conclusions about what is going on but it is certainly time to start looking at not only india and pakistan, but pakistan and afghanistan, and what has now become a very tense relationship, certainly since the raid on osama bin laden is the u.s. pakistani relationship. jon: k kt mcfarland, depth con . we'll continue to watch this. the investigation just a couple of hours old. k. t., thank you. >> reporter: thank you, jon. jon: good morning to you on this wednesday. i'm jon scott. patti ann: and i'm pat

are helping insurgents, enemies of the united states in afghanistan and effectively helping to kill americans and other nato forces there. what are they saying about that? >> well, wolf, it doesn't make sense when you look ate from an american perspective. when i was in pakistan earlier this year, pakistani officials are very concerned about two things. they feel a threat from india. they're worried about the indians having influence in afghanistan. there are some elements within pakistan that use these insurgents in afghanistan as sort of a check on india's power there. they don't like this idea of this rival india having influence on the other side of the border. the other thing they worry about is going into the tribal regions, by doing so they kick up a hornet's nest and then those people start to make attacks in places where people really care. you can liken to a very rural part in alaska, there would be a difference between something happening there and something happening in the heart of times square manhattan. that's sort of the pakistani perspective on that, wolf. >> a juror in the c
together in afghanistan as the u.s. agreed to pull out its troops. hillary clinton praised the recent resumption of talks between india and pakistan. >> we think this is the most promising approach to encourage both sides to build more confidence between them and work to implement the kinds of steps that will demonstrate the improved atmosphere that is so necessary for us to deal with the underlying problem of terrorism. >> she also said that terrorism was on everyone's minds following last week's bombing of mumbai which killed 20 people. the attack revealed once again the vulnerability of the indian cities and the police who are investigating. the security agencies should work closer together to prevent future attacks. the focus of the next page of the visit will be on business and the economy. hillary clinton is leaving delhi and is moving south where she will be visiting a factory. all of this going to show how important india has become to the u.s. and the fact is the relationship between these countries have never been warmer than they are today. >> in london, the preparations ar
deleted in the process. david cameron, who's on a trip to afghanistan, made his feelings clear. >> if they are true, this is a truly dreadful act and a truly dreadful situation. what i read in the papers is quite, quite shocking, that someone could do this, actually knowing that the police were trying to find this person and trying to find out what had happened. >> all this puts more pressure on the prime minister's friend, rebecca brooks. she's the chief executive of news international in the u.k. she was also the editor of the news of the world when milly went missing. she, like other former executives at the paper, has always said she didn't know about the actions of a few rogue reporters. news international argues she's as shocked as everyone else that the latest twist in the scandal. but also making it plain she doesn't intend to resign. >> i think she's been very clear today that that's absolutely what she won't do. this happened back in 2002. she's now chief executive of a company in 2011, she's absolutely determined to get to the bottom of this issue. >> but the politic
at the borders, ports, afghanistan, iraq, police, and our departments by harnessing that american spirit so that we can become a more resilient nation. we are going to be dealing with this sort of threat for the perceivable future, for a couple of generations. you have summed it up very well. we need to confront the risk and overcome it. the executive committee in committee leaders will need to establish overarching policy for the national governors association. following that meeting, the committee will begin work to consolidate, revise, and align our policies for the priorities set by the executive committee. it is our hope that we will be but to build a consensus around key principles, like resilience, that can guide our advocacy efforts and better inform not only our federal lawmakers of the issues but do a better job of informing our citizens of the things that we can do as a free people to make our homeland more secure. the executive committee, we have agreed to allow all policies up for consideration for new policies and process, whatever that means, and we will discuss it at that ti
